Expert talk „Earthquakes in Turkey and Syria – How do I deal with the situation?

The severe earthquakes in Turkey and Syria have touched people all over the world – especially those with personal connections to these countries. Those who have relatives and friends in the earthquake-affected areas are very concerned. Uncertainty and fear, but also the knowledge of the immense suffering of the people living there, are stressful and can temporarily cause strong emotions. Even though these emotions are completely understandable and “healthy”, they evoke helplessness, fear, sadness and anger in most people and make it difficult for us to concentrate and function in everyday life.

In this expert talk, we will again provide helpful advice and tips for dealing with these worries. We explain how our brain reacts to natural disasters like earthquakes and show you helpful ways in coping with the situation. Along the way, we will be happy to answer any questions you may have together with an English-speaking expert.

Fears and worries

Fears and worries are normal and meaningful reactions to threatening situations or changing circumstances. Even though they can burden our everyday life, fears and worries have a function. To deal with these emotions and thoughts, it is important to interpret the message to us correctly, to accept the feeling of fear and to find our way back into self-control when we feel powerless.

Grief and loss

Losing loved ones and grieving for them is part of life. Grief is a natural reaction and an important step in saying goodbye. The death of a loved one is certainly one of the most difficult events to cope with.
